I think it must be Kirtleton, thanks horselydown. I should have looked here first.  ::)

Thanks horselydown, that looks interesting. Will try to find out more about Kirtleton or Kirtlington.  :)

Thanks too Annie. Here's a bigger snip. You can see further down the list of baptisms there is another family of "the parish of Biesley in the County of Gloucester", which makes me think that the MESSENGER family's parish was in Oxfordshire.

I have a baptism for a John MESSENGER in 1747 at Piddington, but I can't work out which parish it says the parents are from. Kin?eton - Kineton, Warwickshire seems a long way away and there is definitely a letter between the n and e.

Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.  :)

Welcome to RootsChat Beckyjuk,

Such a sad event with lasting effects in many I imagine. If you'd like to find out more about your grandfather it might be an idea to start a new thread asking for help to research him. Lots of friendly experienced people here willing to help!  :)

Someone more knowledgeable about such things may be able to help, but a google search tells me that "Silver Hill" barracks was in Sussex.The 5th Regiment of Foot (Northumberland Fusiliers) were at Silver Hill Barracks  and transferred to Gibraltar in 1801.
(either Control F to find "Silver Hill" or scroll down the dates on the RHS of the page.)

Perhaps his father was in the 5th Regiment?

I'm not sure if you already have this information:

Mabel LEE CONWAY died 23 April 1951 at South Yarra. Death notice here:

Wife of Richard (deceased), mother of Doug, Ern, Ivy (Mrs HAYES) and Keith.

Death registration 18320 / 1951 Castemaine. Unfortunately it looks like the death certificate may include many unknowns as there is no parents' names on the index.

There may be another son of Jesse and Mabel LEE-CONWAY. There is a WW2 enlistment for Keith Woodrow LEE-CONWAY - born 29 Nov 1919 Newtown, next of kin - Mabel LEE-CONWAY. I can't see a NSW birth registration for him though.  :-\

There are many items in newspapers about this man on trove
 - in trouble with the law in various States, prison escapes and recaptures etc, including this one with a photograph:

Yes, sorry mckha I just added that as a modification to my post too.

There is another son born Melbourne, Victoria in 1913 - Ernest Francis LEE CONWAY, parents Jesse Richard and Mabel Agnes (nee ROBERTSON) (29449 / 1913)

Actually there is a photograph of Jesse - on his US passport application (12 Jan 1921).

Not sure what information you already have about him? Born Salem, Massachusetts 12 June 1880, father also named Jesse Richard LEE-CONWAY born Salem (according to this application).

Modified to add:
though on his marriage he says his father is Richard Francis LEE CONWAY  :-\
